Michael Glasper was convicted in 2006 for armed robbery of an employee at a City of Chicago parking garage
Glasper v. City of Chicago, et al. – Michael Glasper was convicted in 2006 for armed robbery of an employee at a City of Chicago parking garage. Glasper was convicted at a bench trial but was able to obtain a new trial and was then acquitted after a jury trial. Glasper then sued several Chicago police officers claiming they manipulated the parking lot attendant into identifying him as the armed robber. After conducting discovery, defense attorneys uncovered the fact that Glasper had previously been convicted of robbing numerous other City of Chicago parking garages. Once confronted with this evidence, Glasper’s attorneys withdrew from the case and the case was ultimately dismissed.
